Treatment options for secondary osteonecrosis of the knee.

Orthop Rev (Pavia) 2022 25;14(3):33639. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Medical direction, San Pier Damiano Hospiatl, GVM care and research, Faenza (RA), Italy.

Knee osteonecrosis is a debilitating progressive degenerative disease characterized by subchondral bone ischemia. It can lead to localized necrosis, tissue death, and progressive joint destruction. For this reason, it is essential to diagnose and treat this disease early to avoid subchondral collapse, chondral damage, and end-stage osteoarthritis, where the only solution is total knee arthroplasty.

Department of Morphological Sciences, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, RO-020021 Bucharest, Romania.

Osteochondral lesions (OCLs) that are frequently encountered in skeletally immature and adult patients are more common than once thought, and their incidence rate is rising. These lesions can appear in many synovial joints of the body, such as the shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle, occurring most often in the knee. The term osteochondral lesion includes a vast spectrum of pathologies such as osteochondritis dissecans, osteochondral defects, osteochondral fractures, and osteonecrosis of the subchondral bone.

Evaluation of overall gait quality in Perthes disease. Are global gait indices of value for a local musculoskeletal disorder?

Clin Biomech (Bristol, Avon) 2022 Jul 20;97:105670. Epub 2022 May 20.

University of Duisburg-Essen, Engineering Faculty, Chair of Mechanics and Robotics, Lotharstr. 1, D-47057 Duisburg, Germany.

Background: Until now follow-up- and outcome evaluations in Perthes disease are analysing predominantly subjective results and clinical/radiological parameters. To enlarge the assessment by quantitative, functional aspects a summary measure for overall gait quality would be helpful. Therefore, the objective of this study is to evaluate whether commonly used global gait indices are sensitive to detect gait deviations during the early stages of the Perthes disease. Read More

Dexamethasone microspheres and celecoxib microcrystals loaded into injectable gels for enhanced knee osteoarthritis therapy.

Int J Pharm 2022 Jun 5;622:121802. Epub 2022 May 5.

School of Life Sciences and Health Engineering, Jiangnan University, Wuxi 214122, Jiangsu, China. Electronic address:

The combination of corticosteroids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has been commonly used for inflammation and chronic articular pain in the clinic. Nonetheless, the long-term administration of both medications might result in osteonecrosis of the knee due to repeated injections of steroids and side effects in the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems. To overcome these unmet medical needs, we designed a microsphere-microcrystal-gel delivery system for intra-articular injection. Read More

A pilot study with 3D T1ρ-mapping for quantitative evaluation of cartilage after open-wedge high tibial osteotomy.

Eur J Radiol 2022 Jun 9;151:110308. Epub 2022 Apr 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Nara Medical University, Kashihara, Japan.

Purpose: To evaluate the recently developed three-dimensional (3D) T1ρ-mapping technique for the quantitative evaluation of cartilage changes after open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO).

Method: Eleven patients with medial knee osteoarthritis and spontaneous osteonecrosis of the medial femoral condyle underwent T1ρ magnetic resonance imaging. The full-thickness cartilage of the medial femoral condyle (MFC), lateral femoral condyle, medial tibial condyle, and lateral tibial condyle, and the trochlea and patella were set as regions of interest; mean T1ρ values were calculated using two-dimensional (2D) and 3D analyses.
